What is ‘Creatures of Habbit’?

Creatures of Habbit is a three part series that follows Rachel Rees, a tired and overworked Police Detective. She feels undervalued at work and under-appreciated at home. 

When a German man, Randolph Schwartz, hands himself over to the police for a brutal and seemingly unprovoked murder, Detective Rees is tasked with putting together this strange puzzle.

Is Detective Rees there to complete the jigsaw, or is she in fact, the final and most critical piece?
